OpArt Lofts will consist of two, 10-storey cubic towers that are offset from one another and connected by a two-floor podium. The cubes will be wrapped in a white envelope, punctuated by large windows arranged in a pattern that give the facade a look that the architect describes as “random perforation.”
OpArt is currently under construction at the intersection of Shepherd Rd. and Kerr St. — just south of the region’s major highway and north of Lake Ontario — in an older industrial area that’s been targeted by the city of Oakville for redevelopment.
The project will include a total of 201 units, ranging in size from 440-square-foot bachelors to 1,172-square-foot three-bedroom suites.
“These will be “proper lofts,” Neilas stresses, open-concept spaces with 10-foot exposed-concrete ceilings. “We’re not making concessions by making this a more traditional, suburban-type condo. We’re going to give people real lofts.” – The Star
“…the project will prove popular, particularly with younger generations who grew up in Oakville and want to remain there, but who also crave what downtown Toronto condo dwellers have in terms of groovy building designs.” – Jim Neilas
“… this is going to set the trend in Oakville for future projects.” – Jim Neilas

OpArt Lofts is located in the Kerr Village neighbourhood of Oakville, one of North America’s fastest growing regions. OpArt Lofts features a stunningly modern design consisting of two, eight-storey towers atop a two-storey podium. Designed by the acclaimed firm of Teeple Architects, two white towers spangled with black-framed windows in jaunty patterns reflect the eye-popping Op Art painting style of the 1960s.
This prime downtown location is situated in the centre of everything. Easy access to the region’s major highway network. Steps away from multiple grocery stores and schools. A several minute walk to the busiest GO Transit Station aside from Union Station, Toronto’s central commuter hub. The inspired building is at the forefront of revitalizing Kerr Village into a vibrant business district and cultural area.
